Hate is not okay. Racism is not okay. At Bakersfield we work hard to be inclusive and we will continue to work hard at making everyone know they have value and belong. We do this with our actions, our interactions and our words. We know we have more work to do and are committed to doing it. We hope you will continue to join us.
Educating our children about valuing one another and treating one another with respect is foundational. Anti- Black Racism and all forms of racism are not going away unless we do something about it. If you are interested in sparking a meaningful conversation with your children, here are two places to start. #bekindbeproudbebakersfield
